The Department of Emergency Medicine is proud to offer a unique opportunity with a fellowship in medical education. Across the nation, medical schools, hospitals and clinics are putting greater emphasis on clinical time over classroom time, and Emergency Medicine is poised to have a pivotal role in the training of every resident and medical student. This one-year fellowship is designed to provide EM residency graduates interested in undergraduate medical education (UGME) an avenue to develop skills in teaching medical students and residents, and to develop competency in clerkship direction. Fellows will work closely with the Fellowship Director to develop skills across the breadth of Emergency Medicine medical student education across our institution. Fellows will help run the day-to-day aspects of a medical student rotation (including grading and evaluation, rotational structure, rotational oversight and troubleshooting, and assistance in writing SLOEs).
Additionally, fellows will lead medical student didactics and simulations, develop medical student teaching and evaluation materials, and serve as a mentor to students. There is ample opportunity for on-shift teaching of both medical students and residents. Fellows will also prepare and deliver presentations for resident didactic conferences, participate in formal medical school curricular teaching, and serve as faculty leader for the Emergency Medicine interest group within the nationally regarded UW School of Medicine and Public Health (UWSMPH). Fellows will also get experience with curricular design, implementation, evaluation, and revision at both the Emergency Medicine departmental level and across the UWSMPH.
Clinically, fellows will work a limited number of shifts with an opportunity for additional moonlighting. This clinical time is divided between the Emergency Departments at University Hospital, UW Health at The American Center, and Beloit Memorial Hospital.
Interested applicants should contact David Tillman, MD, Director of Medical Student Education and Fellowship Director.
